Provence Style Home of William Hefner {Classic Interior Design Ideas}

The beautiful 1920’s LA home of architect William Hefner and interior designer Kazuko Hoshino only appears to be located in Provence. The interiors within this 3,800 square foot home in the Hancock Park neighborhood were lovingly reimagined to the couple’s taste and to connect them with the outdoors. At the rear of the home, French doors open to the garden and pool area where a former garage has been converted into a guesthouse. Believe it or not, when the couple took possession of this Spanish style stucco house, the kitchen had Formica countertops, and the windows were sliding aluminum. It was gutted down to the studs and transformed with subtle, elegant details and finishes inspired by their time in Provence.

Large black steel framed windows bring the beauty of the gardens inside, 5″ wide white oak planks are stained walnut, and ceilings were heightened to create airy presence. The interior design by Kazuko Hoshino incorporates a mix of traditional and modern for a classic look. This is definitely a fantasy tour of a home full of custom, bespoke, and important pieces of furniture and art. But that doesn’t mean you cannot get this style of design in your own home if it inspires you. Affiliate links follow and won’t cost you extra yet may earn me a small commission.

Classic Kitchen – Provence Style Home

“Given that, like many families, we seem to spend most of our time in the kitchen/breakfast room. We enlarged the space and opened it up to the garden, and indulged ourselves with a fireplace. We raised the roof to produce a more volumetric master bedroom with a high circular window–thereby avoiding views of the close-at-hand neighbors.” ~William Hefner

Backyard & Pool – Provence Style Home

“As the roof pitch proved steeper than would typically be found on a Spanish or Italian villa, we moved the design in a Provencal direction, selecting taupe roof tiles rather than the expected terra cotta, and blue-grey palette instead of the usual beige. In front, we added a low wall, fountain, and plantings evocative of southern France to create a gentle introductory layer between the house and street.” ~ William Hefner

“As the property was generous and appealing, we took advantage of a dilapidated two-car garage at the lot’s rear to create a compound, rather than enlarging the house to accommodate our family’s needs. By expanding the garage to include a pool pavilion, complete with family room, gym, and guest quarters, and installing floor-to-ceiling glass-and-steel windows and doors along the back of the house, Kazuko and I could maintain a more intimate main residence, and activate the yard by creating openness and movement between the two structures.” ~William Hefner

“In the pool pavilion, the family room–which I call “the cabin” because of the tongue-and-groove paneling and wood beams–opens up completely to the patio and adjoins a large shower and changing room that is always a favorite with guests. My own preferred spot is the Moroccan-inspired roof deck, where, in warm weather, we dine nightly, and in fact all other outdoor spaces have been designed to be habitable “rooms.”” ~William Hefner

    The kitchen is so interesting–the lines are modern, and so are the finishes like the marble and stainless steel. Yet the wood they chose is so rustic. It really keeps the kitchen from feeling cold.

      Yes! I think they could have easily chosen glossy black painted cabinets yet this warm rustic wood feels subtle and lovely!

    I love this post! The home just captivates with its mix of old and new. My favorites are the kitchen with a fireplace and modern art, the library and the outdoor room and grassy swimming pool. Just perfect. Have a great weekend my friend!
